Next weekend, Friday through Sunday, the streets of Charlottesville will be haunted.
To kick off the Historical Society's annual membership drive, the organization offers a 90-minute walk through Court Square and other landmarks of historic downtown, where actors recreate non-fictional Charlottesville residents of the past, including a mayor hung for murdering his wife.
On Good Morning Charlottesville, artistic director Ron Pentz-Harris said the event illustrates Charlottesville's importance in history in a fun way, bringing to life real people and real events unknown to most.
Tickets can be purchased at the Historical Society on 200 Second Street, NE. They are $12 for adults, $5 for children under twelve, when purchased in advance.
All proceeds benefit the society.
The walk leaves every fifteen minutes Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
